The Counterfeit Church

Updated: Aug 13, 2021

In 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12, “Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report, or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He opposes and exalts himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, and even sets himself up in God’s temple proclaiming himself to be God. Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness already is at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus Christ will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and to be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.” Apostle Paul wrote this in 55-AD.


As I listened to President Trump’s impeachment in the house of representatives, I thought of this scripture. Then I remembered back forty years ago when I was studying Bible prophecy and thought that America was going to become a third-rate nation like a Banana Republic. I listened to Adam Schiff, the chairman of the committee, making up his own rules and denying the republican witness to defend President Trump. Some might know that I wrote a note called The Spy That Acted Like A Whistle Blower! I wrote on Sept 27, 2019 that it would be common knowledge by the time that note was published on October 10, 2019. Well, the common knowledge was just among the Democrats. So, I will tell everyone that it was a CIA agent named Eric, and he was reassigned to CIA Headquarters in Langley from the White House. Let me tell you what happened: Lt Col. Alexander Vindman works as a National Security Council staffer who wrote bullet points that President Trump could use to speak to the president of Ukraine. President Trump just ignored his notes and used his own words. So, he went to the NSC attorney, then to the CIA staffer to complain how President Trump just ignored his notes. This CIA staffer named Eric had a bright idea to file a whistleblower complaint against President Trump. He, Adam Schiff, and Vindman huddled to decide what to do. When Rep Devin Nunes asked Vindman who he talked to, he replied that he didn’t know who the whistleblower was, and Chairman Schiff cut off Rep Nunes. Both Schiff and Vindman lied when they said they didn’t know who the whistleblower was. You see, Vindman came to this country when he was three years old. He speaks the language of Ukraine and Russia fluently and he liked the people of Ukraine. They treated him well, but he forgot that it was not his call if Ukraine received any aid from America. But it was President Trump’s call, not a middle-level Army officer like himself. His job was to help President Trump, not to dictate to him. Apostle Paul knew there was no hope, and we have no defense against Satan when God withdraws his Spirit. Lt Col Vindman told us a lot when he corrected Rep Nunes. When Rep Nunes called him Mr. Vindman instead of Lt Col Vindman, it showed us how much pride he has. He is just like his spiritual father, the devil. We must all understand that it is against the law to lie while under oath, we need to tell the truth because we are calling on God to witness to the truth of what we’re saying. Exodus 23:1-3, “Do not spread false reports. Do not help a wicked man by being a malicious witness. Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd, and do not show favoritism to a poor man in his lawsuit.” Exodus shows us that God is a Holy God. It shows us his character is revealed in the law he gives. The thing is he includes unique insight into the person who calls us to a holy life. Exodus brings us to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the person who is our Lord. Those who believe in Jesus Christ are saved by mercy and grace, those who do not believe in Jesus are under the law. We all heard the democrats say that none are above the law, including the president. They don’t know how true those words are. Because God is not into selfishness, or politics, or making up laws because you do not like someone or a group of people. Everyone is under his law: that is not forgiven by faith in Jesus Christ. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and savior, we are saved by the love of God that sent his only begotten Son, Jesus, who came and gave his life on the cross for each of us. When we hate someone or dislike someone, we are not from a family of love. It shows that we are still spiritually dead, and we do not have sound judgement. We are prompt to lie, and to be lawless, like the spiritual father, the devil. The book of Exodus is such an important book, but most importantly, it lays the foundation for understanding our salvation. There are a number of important themes which are the foundation of our faith; God’s mighty miracles, the power that holds Israel in slavery, the feast in remembrance. After being led to freedom, Israel is given God’s Law in the form of a covenant or a contract. I quoted the ninth commandment earlier, do not give false testimony. Everyone has heard how history always repeats itself and anyone who does not know learns history is bound to repeat. For instance, most people do not know that the world is headed toward slavery and it is America that God has used for years to hold it back. The ten plagues that God had used to confront pharaoh with, he will use again to confront all the ones that are left behind after Jesus removes his Church from the earth. Remember the Bible says every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of Lord’s and King of King’s. The nonbeliever of Jesus Christ is the new pharaoh. Let me give you the spirituals personality of them. They accepted Jesus Christ, but they would rather live in sin than follow some religious ritual. We must all understand that we have a counterfeit church that does not teach or preach the real Jesus Christ, but the law and a ritual. If you follow some man-made ritual, you will NOT be forgiven. You will think you are saved because you are obedient to some ritual, and not Jesus. Jesus says love others as you love yourself. He also says judge and you shall be judged and forgive others so you may be forgiven. If you read my book, you will see the church was being added to daily. Then, the devil came up with a scheme where he would counterfeit the real church. The Bible tells us we’re saved my mercy and grace. Mercy is compassion, or forbearance, shown to an offender, an act of divine favor or compassion. The Holy Bible is called the infallible word, incapable of error, not liable to mislead, deceive, or disappoint. The church lived under persecution for more than 300 years and was not allowed to worship in public, and had to meet in homes and caves, because if found out that they believed in Jesus, they would be put to death. Then Emperor Constantine of Rome made Christianity the religion of the Roman Empire and all the other religions came into the church. Naturally, they wanted to bring all their customs and traditions into the church, so the church lost its power. Jesus was replaced by stained glass windows, bell towers, steeples, and rituals. In other words, religious symbols manifesting faithful devotion, or anything to take our eyes off Jesus and put them on religious symbols and not on our Savior, Messiah, Christ. The Devil likes religion because it has no power, and everyone believes they are saved. He laughs at how surprised they will be when they stand before Jesus and he says, ‘go away you evil doer, I never knew you!’ You see, there is big money in religion, but no money in believing in Jesus. But there is love, peace, healings, miracles, salvation, and security in Jesus. Most people don’t know what the word catholic means. It means (general) Christian church. You see, they were called true believers at the time and not Christian, but they became a religion and needed a better name for their new religion. I want everyone to know how God deals with anyone who disobeys his word. In 2 Samuel 6-7, “And when they came to Nachon’s threshing floor, Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled. Then the anger of the Lord was aroused against Uzzah; and God struck him there for his error; and he died there by the ark of God.” We must understand that when God says something, he does not repeat himself. He had told ALL not to touch the ark, or they will die. Ephesians 4:11-12, “And He himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers. For the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” Where do you see priest in that description? You find priest in the Old Testament. Because when Jesus died on the cross, we now live under Mercy and Grace and not under the law. The reason the Catholic Church kept the priest is to annul the power of Christ. The priest was used to make intercession for the children of Israel and to take care of the temple. But all who accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior have Jesus to make intercession for them. Let me give you an example, my life has been threatened three times. The first time by a drunk when I was a youth pastor. I was trying to get him to leave his clothes on because he was trying to undress in front of the congregation. I told him that he was welcome, but he had to stay dressed. He tried to hit me with his fist. He swung at me three times. I did not move, but he could not hit me. Then he swung at the pastor and fell down. We helped him back to his feet and he mumbled about how God had knocked him down. The second time I was working as a switch foreman, because I was pastoring and needed regular hours so I could fulfill my duty as a pastor. I did not make any money for being a pastor, but I was like Apostle Paul who worked as a tent maker. I had been an official, but my boss ordered me to dismiss someone because he didn’t like his personality. I thought I could not dismiss someone because someone disliked him, but my boss was getting up in age and close to retirement, so rather than file a complaint against him I just resigned and went into the ranks and into the union. Then one morning about 4 am while switching cars since 11:00 pm, I decided to drink a Dixie cup of coffee. I asked my helper to go down and make a cut on a car number, and when he came out, I would be at the switch to switch that cut of cars. When my helper told the engineer on the radio to backup, George the yardmaster, said “Dorris, where are you at?” I answered, “On the engine drinking a Dixie cup of coffee.” He replied, “Who told you you could have a cup of coffee?” I answered, “George, you’re the yardmaster, and I’m the switch foreman. It’s your job to tell me what you want me to do, and it’s my job to figure out how to do it, and I do not need your permission to have a cup of coffee.” Then he informed me that he would be right out to talk with me. I could see his flashlight coming, but I just kept working. Finally, he caught up with me and got right in my face, nose to nose, yelling at the top of his lungs that he was my boss and I could not have a cup of water unless he approved it. I said in a very calm voice, “George, I have something to say.” He just kept yelling. I backed up and waved my hands for time out then said, “George, the Bible says God will not put more on me then I can withstand, and you are just about more than I can withstand! So, that means one of us is going to have to leave, and God has not said anything to me about leaving. That means you will have to leave.” I could see him trying to yell, but no sound was coming from his mouth. After about five minutes he just turned around and went back into the office. About 15 minutes later he left to go home. The next day I went to work, and George was not there. I asked where George was and was told that I was the yardmaster as George was in the hospital. I found out that when George left, he had driven straight to the hospital. He had thought he was having a heart attack. The next Sunday I was visiting someone else in the hospital, so I visited George and he welcomed me like we were long lost brothers. He told me that he was a catholic but not a very good catholic, he did not believe in God, but now he believed and he knew that God knew me! He started telling me about all the times that he had tried to set me up to be fired, and how it always boomeranged on him. Then he told me about the time he had an official waiting for me to come to work so he could fire me, and the phone ring and it was the Division Manager ordering him to Saint Louis immediately. Yet, on his way back he was killed in an auto accident. He was the same rank that I had been when I was an officer. Probably every young officer was instructed to do the same thing to test them to see if they have what it takes to handle their job before they were promoted. They call it good business. They want to find out how loyal they are. George was a real good friend of the General Manger and senior Vice President. But Jesus said to treat others the way you want to be treated. Because I resigned to keep from firing another man, the Lord would not allow me to be fired, even if it was ordered by a senior Vice President. You see, I received management training from the U.S. Air Force and they believed that most people know their jobs better than anyone else and management should always encourage their employees to do their jobs safely and to the best of their ability. That is what I did. I was always receiving awards and honors for nothing I did, but what my subordinates had done. I was receiving awards on the behalf of my fellow employees, and I always let it be known how blessed I was to have fellow employees like them. JESUS IS OUR HIGH PRIEST: MAKING INTERCESSION FOR ALL WHO CALL HIM LORD! You see, I was receiving favor from God for obeying his word. But when we receive favor from our Lord Jesus Christ, we are always disliked by people who don’t know God. They are like Cain who hated his brother Able and killed him. We have the same thing with President Trump who is doing God’s will by making Jerusalem the capital of Israel, protecting Christians all around the world, and for fighting corruption in our nation. Anyone who does the will of God will always be hated by God’s enemies. For instance, the Bible tells us how unpopular and unfavorable God’s prophets were with his own people. They were just ordinary common people that God had shown his favor on and most were killed and hated by religious people. Let me give you an example, I had read that a local church was going to close its doors after 145 years because of lack of attendance. I felt grieved, like hearing your uncle was sick, and I prayed for them. The Holy Spirit said that I could help them if I wanted. I asked how and He said I could hold a meeting and there would be standing room only! Then, he reminded me of how people would tell me how they had not been to church in years, but how they had just come when I was ministering. So, the next Sunday I attended their church. After just walking into the building, I remember thinking I was surprised they had lasted 145 years. The first thing I noticed was how everything was turned around. God loves order and the platform was south instead of west. The entrance to their auditorium was also south, which means anyone that was late would have the whole congregation see them enter the auditorium. One thing I know about the Holy Spirit is that he is a gentleman, He would never embarrass anyone. You see, the church is a spiritual body and the platform should always be west, because we live in North America and the earth is round, with the temple in Jerusalem, you would want the congregation facing the Holy of Holies. This is because that is where Jesus will soon be. I knew more about their church in five minutes than probably anyone there. Another instance, the church was established 147 years and ten months ago because they met in a house at 300 state street while their building was being built. When the building was finished everyone entered from the north, then they remodeled the building and wanted everyone entering from the parking lot. That was the Holy Spirit trying to get them to move the platform to the west, because who would want to enter while facing the congregation. But to no avail, the church was started by German immigrants and their platform was on the south of their building because the assembly would be facing south toward Jerusalem, and that shows the love and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ. There’s an old saying that people make all the difference. Although no one introduced me to anyone, the Holy Spirit told me the, church had two deacons running everything. In the third chapter of 1 Timothy, the Lord gave the qualifications for a deacon and neither of these two deacons met those qualifications. He must be kind and gentle, thoughtful, full of good deeds, enjoy having guests in their home, be a good Bible teacher, and not love money, and only have one wife. Then in the fifth chapter he tells them not to speak sharply to an older man but plead with him respectfully just as though he were his own father. The senior deacon was going around with a microphone so people could give testimonies. I held up my hand, so he gave me the mic. I introduced myself and started to give the message the Holy Spirit had sent me to give them. The senior deacon removed the mic from my hands and said they have to move on, to which I replied that the Lord said to wipe the dust from my shoes as a public announcement of how close you were to the kingdom of God. You see, the deacon saw the building as the church, and the church was standing right beside him. When I looked at the congregation about a minute I saw in my spirit a person with cancer, a person with pain in their back, a person with arthritis in their knee. In a few minutes he would have shown me a lot more. This deacon saw the church as a social club, and I had seen the church as the body of Jesus Christ. I’m 75 years old, would he have taken the mic from his own father? I was a guest and a gentleman would not be that rude to a guest. Yet, he was a deacon at a social club, calling themselves church. The real churches are those who love others as they love themselves, to testify of their faith in Jesus, and to show that the purpose of all prophecy that is Jesus. I have shown you that these deacons and the democrats are rebelling against God. Think if I were your father or your grandfather. Were they acting in accordance with John 13:34? “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” That was Jesus, which gave his life for each of us. That is what I call love, not someone who points her finger at someone and says I dare you tell me that I don’t love President Trump, because I pray for him. Or it’s like Cain saying I dare you say I do not love my brother Cain just because I killed him. Hebrews 13:2 warns us, “Don’t forget to be kind to strangers, for some have entertained angels without realizing it!” You see, that deacon someday will stand before Jesus and try to explain why he was so rude when he removed the microphone from my hands, and he will say, “But Lord I did not know that you sent your prophet.” Jesus will answer, “Have you not read Hebrews 13:2?” In which he tells of complete strangers who came up to him and asking him if he was a Christian? He says, “They were looking for me, and they saw my anointing on him. Go away from me, because you love money more than you love me. I want everyone to see a Jesus who loves you enough to die in your place.” Now, he will have eyes like flames of fire, staring at you because you were never born again in his Holy Spirit, because you thought you were perfect the way you are. You are just like Satan. You are elite to everyone else, you are smarter than all the American people, and you know more than anyone else. I’m like Apostle Paul and am the least among you, because I know I am not anything special, because I know that I am not that smart so the Holy Spirit can use me to help others. He can show me things in my Spirit supernaturally, because I love others and only want the best for them because I love them. Jesus loves his church, and because of my love, he is able to use me. It’s been said that the democrats accuse President Trump of everything they are doing like he is trying to cover up his crime. Let’s look at that. Like I said earlier, I knew over 40 years ago that this would happen to America. Because we are the world’s policeman, the devil has to try to make us into a third-rate nation. I wrote over 4 years ago about the drug cartels paying billions of dollars to the Democratic Party to pay politicians, attorney generals, governors, and judges to run interference for them, and what you are seeing is President Trump trying to stop human trafficking and drugs from coming into America. They are trying to cover up their corruption for representing the drug cartels instead of the American citizens. Jesus called his followers disciples, which means students of rightness, and anyone who votes for these prostitutes, or democrats, will have to answer for their vote when they stand before Jesus! Because we are supposed to be the body of Jesus, and that means we are servants of our fellow man. We need to love them because Jesus loved them enough to die for them. The Bible says do not put your faith in flesh. The democrat party is not the party that most of us grew up with. For instance, after the house passes the impeachment, they will NOT send it to the senate thinking it is an insurance policy in case President Trump is reelected. They will send it to the senate with more lies hoping to win more democratic senate seats, putting a lot more money in the senate elections. We must remember that the prosecution never gets to choose what is fair for the accused, because our constitution guarantees everyone a fair trial without bias or prejudice.
